Solution 19689: Using the TI-Nspire™ CAS Handheld, TI-Nspire CX CAS Handheld, and TI-89 Titanium Simultaneously In a Classroom.

Can I use the TI-Nspire CAS handheld, TI-Nspire CX CAS handheld, and TI-89 Titanium in my classroom simultaneously?

Although the TI-Nspire CAS handheld, TI-Nspire CX CAS handheld, and the TI-89 Titanium graphing calculator all feature CAS (Computer Algebra System), their functionality and user interface differences would likely affect the approaches used in exploring some concepts. This could also create operational confusion among students. In addition, the TI-Nspire CAS handheld and TI-Nspire CX CAS handheld offer new and unique pedagogical benefits that the TI-89 Titanium does not.
